Booking 3rd adult in Moderate, but actually staying at Value

So, last time we went to WDW my brother and I booked one room with the free dining package and tickets at the POP and he booked just a room with a AAA discount at the Movie Resort.

This year I was supposed to stay with my mother (my husband likes to say he doesn't like people, so he stays home while I make other people go on trips with me!) but my aunt has decided at the last minute she is going too. My mother and aunt will now be sharing a room at the Caribbean and I will be staying solo at the Pop. I was wondering if it might be cheaper for them to book me in their room with tickets (and fingers crossed free dining), yet stay at the Pop, but just booking the room. When I price it as just me at the Pop for our length of stay it is around 1800.00 (which includes tickets, but not dining). Adding me to the Caribbean room is around 500.00 (tickets included). What discount might I get at the Pop for just a room. I have AAA if that matters.

TIA

The charge for an extra adult at CBR is $15/night plus tax. The AAA savings on value rooms is 10% off of the rack rate (except Holiday Season), according to Mousesavers.com. Unless the rack rate for POP is above $150/night, you will spend more as the "third adult" than you will save with the AAA discount.
